What is the Ersatz font?

Ersatz has its vibrant roots in the Mediterranean climate of Spain. Tired of the functional monoline sanserif fonts used throughout Europe from road signage to corporate identity, Richard Dawson and Dave Farey, British type designers who crave color and sunlight, created a style that is refreshing and lively. The basic constructions are simple and attractive, mixing lower case shapes into the capitals – and unique letterforms into the lower case. There’s a raunchy feel to Ersatz, soft curves and back kicks, if you listen very carefully you can hear the sharp guitars and the soft tambourine of the Flamenco.

You're probably thinking - Is Ersatz available to Download for free?

The short answer is no. Ersatz is definitely not available as a free download font. This is a premium font which mean that you will have to pay to download and use it in your project. We showcase fonts on SharedFonts that are almost all premium fonts. Feel free to waste valuable hours of your time searching for a free download of Ersatz, but take it from me, you will not be successful in your quest. Just think how much time and effort you will save if you just pay for Ersatz and be done with it.

It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Ersatz is that you get the license to use it leagally. If you're using an illegal version of Ersatz and you get caught, you or your client could get into some trouble legally with the publisher of Ersatz. Also it is highly unlikely that you'll be able to find Ersatz for free. Doing various searches on Google such as "Free Ersatz Download" you will see a lot of websites that will say "Free Download" but these are just attempts to get you to click on a link which will either take you to an ad landing page or you risk getting viruses on your computer. In the rare occasion that you do find a free download for Ersatz remember that it's illegal to use a font if you didn't pay for it!
